      Just finished lowering my '00 ex 3" in the front (which yes it's an awd and yes I know that will prematurely wear my cv joints) but the problem is now I have to turn the wheel almost a quarter turn to the left to drive in a straight line. I was just wondering if anyone has a reason as to why this is and any quick fixes to this problem; other than raise it of course

      Thanks

      you need to do a alignment after dropping or lifting them because you have changed the geometry of the suspension

      Update on the situation:

      I knew all along I'd need to get camber kits for both sides, but I can't wait for them to come in the mail. A friend of mine's dad told me that if I were to get the tie rods shortened this would fix my camber issue; does anyone have any idea if this would actually work? I'd rather have that done in a day or two than wait weeks for parts to come in the mail, even if it is more $$

      the kits are the way to fix the alignment, you move the upper control arms for camber , not the tie rods

      tie rods you adjust, they are the length they are cause in the cycle from the bottom of the suspension travel to the top of the travel they only need to be adjusted a small amount to maintain proper toe,,
